Freak Flag Fest
June 15-17, 2018
@The Brooklyn Kitchen
100 Frost St.
Brooklyn, NY, USA

Freak Flag Fest (FFF) brings together art, music, food and friends. FFF celebrates the independent underground art and music scene that we've been aware of / part of / around for the last 20 years. Let your freak flag fly, and remember why we love this town.

FFF is sonic, video, projection and installation art, plus awesomely discordant music loud and quiet. FFF is homemade vegan treats inspired by queer hippies. FFF is a totally legal underground rock show revival for all, from legit youth to the somewhat middle-aged. There will be chairs and drinks and inflatables.

PERFORMANCES

FILM SCREENINGS

Curated by: KHLOARIS

Celebrating all New York underground film, from highbrow films made by academics, to no-budget trash made by scoundrels.

The programming will run the gamut from live 16mm multi-projector presentations to a multi-media installation from a venerated NYC film workshop and journal to a living VHS museum/lounge to one very strange feature film.

Screenings will play between musical acts, all screening times are approximate.
